So, what do I do with my degree?


Chris Kendrick (BCS, ’92)


Abstract:  As you embark on a career in Information Technology, it is a challenge to understand what the market is looking for and where your degree may take you.  As a “cloud of resources”, Bell professional Services are required to proactively adapt to the demands of the market and, as such, is at the pulse of what organizations are looking for to supplement the capacity and skills of their teams.   Through the lens of a recent public procurement for resources, Chris Kendrick (’92) will guide the audience through the various roles that are being asked for; explain what the role entails; and offer his professional and personal insight on the employment prospects through a natural story-telling approach.
